Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX electric car concept hits 1,008-km milestone

Mercedes-Benz says its experimental vision EQXX electric car travels from the Stuttgart suburb to the French Riviera on a single charge, using just 8.7 kilowatt hours per 62 miles to cover a total of 1,008 km or 626 miles, with an average speed of about 55 miles per hour. The tank is monitored by the remote from the home office

The concept-car project marks a new wave of electric-car development in the German automaker, which plans to go Complete electric route by 2030.

Vision EQXX debuted at CES in January in Las Vegas, where Mercedes said it would showcase its leadership and capabilities in electric-vehicle technology.

Mercedes began developing the EQXX with the goal of redesigning every component of an electric vehicle to maximize efficiency. As a result, the automaker claims that a car that can cover long-distance drives, such as the Cassis, near its design studio in the south of France, is driving on a single charge in the real world.

The Vision EQXX’s lithium-ion NMC battery still had about 15 percent of its total battery capacity after a 626-mile drive, or as much as Mercedes says, had another 25 miles left before the battery-protection margin stopped progressing. That 626-mile drive checks 106 miles more than the current Range King, 520-mile Lucid Air Dream Edition. By making it, engineers prove, Mercedes is the most efficient car ever made.

The EQXX is a sedan that weighs about 3,869 pounds, has a wheelbase of 110 inches, produces a maximum of 201 hp and runs on a 900-volt electrical system. The 20-inch wheels have an aerodynamic design and are wrapped in Bridgestone’s Turanja Echo tires. The concept car has a front door, but a fixed rear edge from the back of the B-column, which marks a change in what looks like a production-ready front end and more experimental tail.

Mercedes has tapped into its various divisions to help improve the efficiency of the car, including the Formula One team. It extends to software used by cars. Other key competencies include the design of electric motors, the use of lightweight materials, and aerodynamic optimization.

In the case of Arrow, we are talking about a drag coefficient of about 0.17, thus losing the 0.20 CD rating. Mercedes EQS—Which has the lowest rating for the production vehicle. And a single drive unit, combined with an electric motor, transmission and power electronics, a new generation of silicon carbide, helps transfer 95% of the energy stored in the battery to the wheels. The EQXX has a power-extensible rear diffuser responsible for the considerable reduction in drag, says Mercedes, and careful tuning of the side of the car এতে it has almost flat wheel covers এটি heals from a “turbulent sausage” in the air that usually damages less smooth vehicles.

Another key area of ​​efficiency is heat management. A system of arrow shutters, coolant valves and a water pump help drive the unit and the battery from overheating. Conversely, when the situation is cold, which usually reduces the range, the system can help conserve heat. A heat pump is also available to help keep the cabin warm by removing heat from the drive system. It also has an external heat exchanger that draws heat from the ambient air to help heat the cabin faster.

Weight loss will be achieved through increased use of lightweight materials and constant correction. Engineers have been able to lose about 90 pounds of carb weight in the last few weeks of development – as if it were taking a cutting cycle before the competition. A new technique was employed for some structural elements, where software tools were used to design parts with high-strength, low-object properties, resulting in somewhat bio-looking form. We’ve seen something similar from companies like Hypercar Startup Changer; The Viper arms in the Vision EQXX, for example, are 3D printed and look like something used to block the Gaud সা Sagrada family.

Finally, the EQXX has a solar array attached to its own small battery. The energy generated by the solar array is used to power accessories such as lighting, infotainment systems and other cabin features. It takes some load from the main battery.

In terms of overall efficiency, Mercedes says the concept uses less than 10 kwh of electricity per 100 kilometers. This is the amount of energy needed to run a home air conditioner or tumble dryer for about three hours.

The main battery is close to 100 kwh capacity and features a density of about 400 watt-hours per liter. This means that the capacity of the battery is almost the same as that of the EQS battery but half the size and 30% lighter. This was initially achieved through better packaging of cells, as well as the use of anodes with higher silicon content – meaning they could hold more energy. Mercedes engineers suggest that the automaker may test other battery chemistry inside the same rolling body — for example, a less efficient but more durable and cost-effective LFP battery.

The brilliant release of The Vision EQXX proves that যদি if it could be translated into production ট electric cars could give us beautiful cars again, with less and smoother shapes, like the 1930s bottel drama.

The interior of the car looks a bit more conventional than the technology elsewhere. It has a current Mercedes design theme, but with a future flair. Highlights include the dash-wide wide screen, which predicts the successor to the multi-display hyperscreen environment, as well as being used across durable materials. One of them is the underground structure of mushrooms and other fungi which are skin-like elements made from mycelium. Another, a purple-blue bamboo shag rag, gives the cookie monster the main power.

The test drivers provided the EQXX concept on track and in a short ride Motor authority Outside of Cassis, the car seemed completely conventional from the passenger seat. Except for the adaptive damp and exterior suspension of the larger EQE and EQS sedans, its ribbon-candy-like fiberglass rear springs seemed to be less throwback than the externally tapered shape.

Driving a concept car is rarely useful, as most of it is an engineering sandbox full of features and experiments that will never reach the buyers. Although Mercedes Vision is not expected to launch a production version of EQXX, the lessons learned from its development will benefit future EVs from the automaker. Mercedes says it will spend 40 billion euros (about $ 45.3 billion) on EV development between 2022 and 2030. In the case of the EQXX, those big figures are obviously spent on some of its glamorous bits and pieces: the sophisticated infotainment system of the liquid gaming style, the densely packed battery and its super-saver motor and we hope to see some interesting shapes and textures in its cabin.
